    New set up on Bushmaster 308



    This is my new set up on my Bushmaster 308. So happy I picked it up a month ago or would have paid more then twice of what I did pay.
    I did just find out my Ca pig hunting ranch is no longer available to hunt pigs. No Bueno! Now I'm back to looking for another place to go.
    I'll be going out next weekend to get it sighted in and hopefully go on a Mt Lion hunt in Feb.

    Ya no doubt! It's crazy how the costs have gone up on everything! Even trying to locate a AR to have it in your hands before you order it is almost impossible these days.

    Nice set-up, I'm sure glad I bought a few .223 lowers before the rush happened. I was trying to get a .308 lower but they were already long gone! We'll see what happens in the future.

    I hope it will slow down soon. Can't find any 308 ammo anywhere. I have about 80 rounds and that's it.

    Time to work on reloading. .308's just about got perfect ballistics for a short-legged round. We shot 168gr. Sierra BTHP match 40 years ago, but out of a 30-06 cartridge-had considerably better downrange performance than the .308. out of an M40-A1

    That's a really nice setup, Ikeepitcold, but I don't know if I'd want to take it into CA, it's got that evil pistol grip and adjustable stock. By the way, I did my undergrad work at UNR.

    Thats 40 rounds more than I have. I'm looking for some unprimed .308 brass, Win. or Rem. I'm all set with powder/primers/bullets.
    I haunt the LGS's & Wally-World...no luck yet. That Is a NICE rifle you have there, I have a DPMS LR-308. What brand of scope do you have on the rifle? I can't make it out in the pic.
